HOW TO SIROTA: poorly make a fist and act like you're afraid to throw a punch.

Asinine Salon contributor David Sirota cemented his place in the Hall of Douchebaggery with his Tuesday column titled “Let’s hope the Boston Marathon bomber is a white American.” But just in case you had any remaining doubts that he’s a colossal douchebag, Dana Loesch points us to his Twitter avatar. The name of the file is “sirotapunch3.jpg.” Heh.


[Update: @CuffyMeh originated the Sirota avatar mockery well before Sirota’s latest column.]

Take that, white male privilege!

Forget planking and Eastwooding. #Siroting is the new craze that’s sweeping the nation (or at least the Twitterverse).



Needed some more chicks to do some #Siroting @dloesch too funny

It wasn’t long before #Siroting was a trending topic.


And just for fun:


Ha! ‘Tough guy” David Sirota changed his douchey avatar in response to the #Siroting meme.

Did he do this first?

    Hey…correct me if I’m wrong, but is he not ONLY #siroting in that first picture but is he ALSO #whitemansoverbiting?

    • Pat Loudoun

      Yes he is Carolyn. Yes he is.

  • Ryan

    He’s lucky he isn’t biting his tongue off with that over bite. I always see that liberals are the genetically deficient odd looking individuals.

    • Kelly England McDonald

      Too much inbreeding.

  • Dandee

    The guy is a bore

  • Silenttype78

    What a juice bag!!!
    This is the funniest thing I’ve seen in at least 2 weeks!

    • μολὼν λαβέ

      Tee-Hee “juice bag”…

      • VekTor

        Lemme guess… “juicebox” + “douchebag” = “juice bag”

  • Robbie C

    Justin Bieber strikes a more threatening pose than Sirota. And would probably whip Sirota’s ass in a girlyman-on-girlyman slap contest.

    • Chris

      Wow, the amount of laughter that came from me on that one is unexplainable. Just for fun throw Selena in there and let her whip both their butts….

    • Stupid Republic

      Something tells me David Sirota was regularly beaten for his lunch money, not only through high school and college, but even as recently as six minutes ago.

  • ceemack

    Sirota hopes the Boston Marathon bomber turns out to be a white male. As for me, I hope Sirota actually tries to hit someone. The way he makes a fist, he’ll break his fingers.

  • skydash

    I’d love to do one, but no matter how hard I try,I just can’t make myself look like a coddled pussy.

    • Evi L. Bloggerlady

      But on second thought…David Sirota may be onto something… I do recall a white American dude “from the neighborhood” who has a history with pressure cookers…

      But I agree capturing Sirota’s “coddled pussy” look is difficult for most people!

      • Ben Bollman

        But like Sirota, being a liberal absolves you of all evil motivations.

    • trixiewoobeans

      We’ll see a lot of this from the student’s harassing Allen West’s wife when he goes after them, LOL!

  • Michael Gebert

    If I’m not mistaken, he’s also attempting Blue Steel in that avatar image.

  • Sean Maloney

    Next up: Show your bad hair transplant!

  • waltermitty2012

    Why are card-carrying liberals against card-carrying immigrants?

  • ClinkinKY

    “sure oughta” quit while he’s behind. ps-Justified is the best show on TV. Even if it wasn’t, I would still watch it just to see Nick Searcy:)

  • Diane Stephan

    The Richard Simmons and Gary Eaton poses sent me over the edge. LMAO!

  • Cranios

    #Sirota gives d-bags a bad name!

  • tony greene


  • arttie

    At least it is not an Anthony W’s siroting pose.

  • E Quilibrate

    Could be slightly different, douchebag might be a misnomer. I submit
    he may be the end product of the act of douching.

  • MrApple

    Time waster, nothing more.

  • DeBaliviere

    Looks like Sirota is posing for a “Safe Fisting” PSA.

    • Brian H (wackobird)

      Those were CONDOMS???? EWWWWW….

  • JustLikeAnimals

    @davidsirota I hear Wikipedia just updated its content to include a life-sized portrait of David Sirota on the entry page for “douchebag.”

  • RichardBlaine

    Can’t Sirota without unlearning everything I know about being a man.

    • Brian H (wackobird)

      Being a true beta male is certainly learned over time. Also best not pursued later in life. Always be Alpha!

  • Jack Deth

    This is a great response to Sirota’s “Poser guy posing before being punched” Avatar.

    I really like Kevin’s properly extended pinkie in his photo! Etiquette, people!!!

  • aliwilcox

    I needed this laugh today!

  • cummingsamerica

    Take it from me — I had to endure Sirota’s 4-minute talk radio stint (he once asked if we’re all irresponsible for having front lawns due to climate change), this guy deserves every ounce of mockery.

  • LostEveryWeekend
  • rivers

    Thanks, David Burge, you made me full on snort laugh, which woke the hubs but it was time for him to get up anyway.

  • Junie3

    I think we found our bomber, his name is Barack Obama, he cut domestic bombing prevention by 45%. Some one tell Sirota our guy is half white and on the left, the one that hung out with domestic terrorists, the Weather underground terrorists.

  • Nate

    The Ting of Siro…

  • Kelly England McDonald

    His self-hatred as a “privileged white male” would be sad and pathetic if he weren’t such an utter piece of shit….I’d like to #Sirot him right in his “junk”, if he had any!!!!

  • Jim

    Falcon punch!

  • Jim

    Kelly Maher’s punch actually looks like it could do some damage.

  • trixiewoobeans

    Why does Curly from The Three Stooges keep coming to mind?

  • Daniel Gilfillan
  • © Sponge

    Poster child for post term abortion?

    I’m sorry…that was out of line and I denounce myself for typing it.

  • BoldFreshJew ⊕

    #Siroting is exactly why we do have nice things!

  • Zefal

    I think we all owe anthony weiner an apology.

  • Renny

    He could be communista’ing like Jackie Chan.

  • gvanderleun

    Is it just me or is his twitter account gone? [ooops it is me. nevermind. #roseanroseannadanna]

  • 1weaver1

    I have arthritis in my hands, but I can still make a better fist than that.

  • BAW

    Apparently, I have for the first time ever, had a comment removed at the Washington Post. I mentioned the article, Siroting, called ya’ll happy warriors and said Sirota thought all the criticism was about the picture. I keep reposting comments trying to figure it out (sure that’s why).
